Hello Mercer friends and family!
Our Varsity and Master’s Teams had great showings at the Head of the Housatonic this last weekend! Some of the highlights include a 1st/2nd finish for our girls’ 2V boats, a close 4th place to our girls’ 1V, and a strong 6th place finish for the boys’ 1V. There will be an additional blog post about the lineups for our next race, the Head of the Charles, coming soon!
Coach Zach and Coach Amanda have decided they will be taking two novice 8s each to the Head of the Schuylkill in Philadelphia, October 29th. They are impressed with the novices’ progress and can’t wait to see their boats in action during this huge race! Both events have over 40 novice boats entered at this time.
Most of our Nike gear has been delivered! Please see Coach Amanda before or after practice to pick up what you ordered. We are still waiting for our men’s MEDIUM pants, women’s MEDIUM sweatshirts, and women’s SMALL pants to be delivered, but they are expected soon. If you ordered anything from JL they will be shipping our team order at the end of October.
Our next gear order will be Patagonia! These items are great as gifts for the holidays (which are fast approaching!) and will be in before our winter break December 20th. The Patagonia order form is a google document that can be found at this LINK.
Please turn in the orders by WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 18th! No late orders will be accepted.
This weekend is our Octoberfest celebration! This is a 21+ event and dinner will be provided. Feel free to bring your favorite adult beverage! Keep in mind our fundraiser at Top Golf, November 19th, tickets are limited.
Mercer is off to a great start this Fall!
